Dear sir

I was suffering from joints pain, under the thumb of both the hands i am 60 years old, having no other disease like BP, DIABETES ETC . DOCTOR has taken blood tests and declared that URIC ACID level has gone up up to the border level 3.5 to 7.00 . my level was 6.99. i had taken a lot of care and after few months now the URIC ACID level is 4.13. But the pain in the joints, at the bottom of thumb has not gone. it is still there. i am surprised. what shall i do?

Gout pain
by: Peter

Hi Suresh.
Your pain may well stay in your joints for months.
I=Even if your uric acid levels are lower. The joints can be a gathering point for gout to stay lodged for a long time. After some big gout attacks the pain stayed for 3 months and also so did the swelling. Try and flush your system by drinking lots of water and try celery seed pills etc that are anti inflammatory.
I will you luck with your journey.
